Summer Vacation

First of all the picture shown is not what you get. I chose Howard Johnson because I know them here in California to be clean. However, this was more of a low graded Motel 6. The bath sink didn't have a stopper, at times the air conditioner didn't work, the bed spread had any cigarette burn in them, the television didn't work. The person at the front desk was friendly. The hotel was creepy to me. I felt that person could push hard against the door and it would open.

Every thing average

Everything here was fine except for location. I was awaken twice in the middle of the night by freight trains!!! Hotel is right next to several tracks. NOT GOOD if you need to rest before getting back on the road. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Only the bath tub could have used more attention, but everything else was nice and clean!
